How difficult is Royal Gorge at 620 cfs? Would you consider it a class III run instead of class IV?

If my memory serves me, Sunshine is probably still class IV, but that can be easily portaged. Is the Sledgehammer hole a problem at this flow? Anything else to worry about?

Thanks.

From what I have seen, Clarks hole is always working. Easy to miss on river left.

I think, IF you know the lines, the Gorge is class III at this level, except for Sunshine, which is still a IV.
But if you don't know the lines through the Sledgehammer/Boat Eater area, I think there are still class IV consequences at this level. Some of those holes could still be munchy, and the scouting wouldn't be real easy....
So, it just depends on how well you know the run.
Class III difficulty with class IV consequences.
